    I'd call the shrimp The Mercury Glass Colony or M.G.C. for short! But one of the shrimps would be called Cleo another would be Sash, Pronounced: s-A-sh, and the last one Sarpy idk why I thought of Sarpy but okie dokie! #ShrimpLovers #AntLovers

        Before the actual reveal based upon seeing the sneak peak at about 1:00: I’m guessing the aliens are gonna be Amano shrimp.

        Edit after reveal at about 7:50: Oh alright, Glass shrimp.

        This isn’t supposed to be funny or anything, I’m just making a guess in the comments.

                                            I’m sure there’s already a name for them, but I think they should be called “Xenomorphs” or “Xenos” for short, or to go with the clean up aspect of them, they could be the “porters” or maybe the “stewards”, I was thinking “custodians” but you would have to get them a tiny little ring of keys to jangle every time they swam around hahaha

                                                  Well, my bet, for certain at least one baby will eventually set up shop in the main tank and there is a decent chance that some males are born to the safety tank.

                                                        Because the ammonia content in the little Pond would be to high with so many toads going the bathroom in it and the toads would absorb the ammonia through their skin.
